Dry Riser Systems

dry riser

Dry risers, typically installed in buildings over 10m tall, are a series of pipes that allow the delivery of large amounts of water to various upper floors of a building in case the need to combat fire arises. They are installed into suitable positions, such as in a staircase, and feature an inlet at ground level which the fire brigade can then connect to main water supplies and outlets on each of the upper floors. Here at Nortex Fire, we offer a full testing, maintenance and repair service to ensure that your legal obligations are met and your riser is fully operational should the need to use it ever arise.



Wet Riser Systems

Working along the same principles as dry riser systems, wet risers allow the transportation of water to upper floors in your property, However, these systems are typically installed in buildings over 60m tall and and are kept constantly charged with water. Nortex Fire offer a full testing, maintenance and repair service to ensure that your systems are fully operational and fit for purpose. Whatever environment you own or manage, Nortex Fire can provide you with professional help and assistance, ensuring you have the correct system for your application and are complying with all necessary standards and legislation.
